On behalf of the whole community of St. Aidan’s Catholic Primary School I would like to welcome you to our school. We hope that this is the beginning of a very long and happy association with our school. The very best schools are the ones in which the whole school community work together and at St. Aidan’s we are proud of our strong links and good relationships.
I am very proud to be Headteacher of St. Aidan’s and firmly believe that it is everything a primary school should be; inclusive, fun, exciting, caring and forward thinking! We don’t know what jobs our children will do in the future, in fact they might not even exist yet, but at St. Aidan’s we strive to challenge and equip our pupils with the skills needed, not only to make them successful, but to go beyond that and exceed expectations, the sky’s the limit!
We always try to cater for the needs of our pupils. We provide high quality breakfast and after school clubs, run by school staff. We also run a variety of extra-curricular clubs to give children even more exciting opportunities, quality sports coaching, events and competitions to promote a love of sport and a healthy lifestyle.
We believe that schools are stronger when they work together and this provides better opportunities for our children. Therefore, we are supported by strong partnerships with other local Wigan schools (within the WOWS Consortium), with the Liverpool Archdiocese and by the Parish of St. Aidan’s.
Our governing body supports all that we do and are keen to get involved as they join with me in a simple goal: for each child to walk ‘Hand in Hand in Jesus’.
We hope that you find our website useful. The aim is to celebrate everything we are proud of and to provide you with a guide to procedures and policies. Remember to also follow us on twitter @Staidanschool1.
Finally, the best ambassadors for St. Aidan’s are the pupils and staff themselves. Therefore I would encourage families who may be considering St Aidan’s for their children to come and visit us. Come along and see the school at work – and meet our wonderful children!
With every best wish,
Mrs J M Farrimond
